Erik Buch dining chairs, model 49

These rosewood chairs were designed by Erik Buch of Denmark in 1956 and were in production for a long time.  This particular set of six had the original wool upholstery.


There were lots of little stains.  Often you can get these out if you work on them soon enough, but these had become permanent.  New fabric was the only solution.

The foam padding had lost its oomph, too.


The clients chose this wool tweed in a subtle tones of gray, cream and light brown.  It looks similar to the original but has more color interest.


Dinner’s ready!


The wonderful thing about fabric like this is that changes color depending on the light.  Here it looks warm…


…and here it looks cooler, more gray.


I think it looks great with the rosewood frame.

We have more of this tweed.  Come to Home Anthology to for a swatch.


(The rosewood table and leaf dish shown above are available at Home Anthology as of this writing.)
